KINSTON: 10:14 AM This morning I rode with Brandon to apprehend a bond forfeiture.
A bond made October 3, 2018 for Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance. The man failed to appear in court.
The man was living in Tent City when he was arrested. The man left the jail and went to rehab for 8 months in Augusta Georgia. From rehab the man stayed in New Orleans Louisiana because his brother lives in New Orleans.
Recently the man came to Kinston Alabama. He was not in good physical condition and several medical problems.
When we arrived the man was on the porch smoking a cigarette. He was no problem and taken into custody without incident.
His 14 year old son was at the house. He wanted to tell him bye. We took the handcuffs off and let him tell the son bye. Did not want the son to see his dad in handcuffs.
The man only had to sign a form called Waiver of Arraignment and Plea of Not Guilty. His problems were compounded because he did not remain in contact with his bondsman and court appointed attorney.
Brandon Brock, A - Advantage Bonding, is on FACEBBOOK. Brandon goes live on FB as he searches for the ones who have missed court. Often times it is something like this case where it is simple to resolve. The person makes it more difficult when they fail to appear and do not remain in contact with their bondsman and attorney.
WARNING TO ANYONE WITH COURT CASE stay in contact with your bondsman and attorney. Make sure the address you had listed on your bond paperwork at the jail is indeed the correct address where you or someone gets and opens your mail.
The number one way someone gets hung up in the court system is the address given is not the address they are currently living. The court does not forward your mail. All notices will go to the address you gave when bonded from jail.
Make sure it is accurate so you do not end up with Brandon knocking on your door.
